Ever since Kanye killed that GQ spread, I've been into the idea of wearing the same color. I decided on a blue chambray sleeveless top from H&M and MM6 Maison Martin Margiela navy cotton & linen skirt. Clearly not on Ye's level, but just wait on it. Ya girl is on the come up. I picked up the MM6 skirt for 40 bucks secondhand in great condition from Vaunte, a site to buy and sell designer clothes for the low low. When I'm buying secondhand, I always compare the item to things I already own and how much I bought those comparable items for new. When purchased, the skirt was in "like new" condition, so I was 'bout it for 40 bucks.
Before I skipped town, I decided that I could try to be more interesting when it comes to the use of accessories. You can usually catch me wearing small hoop earrings, a watch, and maybe a bracelet if I'm really tryna do something. I picked up the earrings at a small store here in Toledo and even had a small conversation with the woman who made them. If you know me, you might know that I'm totally into that type of shopping -- where you can have a conversation with someone about where the product came from and have them know with certainty that it's well made. I got the cord necklace when I was visiting a friend and an AWO founding member, Caroline, in Michigan from a store called Pitaya...I am pretty sure there is one in Chicago, too, but I'm not certain.
Not to crap on Spain, but I'm not that into the shopping here. Maybe I just haven't found the right places yet ~~ hit me with them suggestions doe ~~. The small, artisan stores are mad cool, but the chain stores are only alright; they're not very different than the ones in the US. On the bright side, I'll get to save this guap.
Also, big thanks to my best friend/partner-in-crime Natalie for taking these pics. She's also the Creative Director of Blacklight Magazine. So, when the magazine snaps (and it will), you know who to thank.
